  1. I've been around at least a dozen E1A majors over the last 30 years, and only found out about the dipstick this morning! Knowing my current tractor had a replacement engine I just had to go and see - and yes, it has TRACTOR stamped on it.
  2. Ah, sorry, I'll just carry on following! Great thread, Rob.
  3. Hi, I hope I'm not repeating things. If you need parts for your 4D engine, the serial no. in here should give you the type and year... https://www.selen.nu/cgi-bin/trsnr.pl?lang=en Behind the dynamo there should be a casting code, put here to get the day of casting...https://www.selen.nu/cgi-bin/trnr.pl?lang=en Interested to know if the dipstick has 'TRUCK' or 'TRACTOR' stamped on it.
  4. Depends where in Surrey you are but the Basingstoke canal does cover Weybridge to Frimley in the west end of your patch.
  5. Sorry, they are asking too many questions . What is it? How often do you use it? Valid queries. Where is it kept? How is it secured? What's it worth? I wouldn't disclose that to anyone I didn't know.
  6. Hopefully of use to someone for research, a general view of traffic in Stanstead in which there are four or five army landrovers caught on this colour clip with some markings and badges visible. https://www.britishpathe.com/video/juggernauts-in-stanstead/query/juggernaut
  7. My 1978 mk2 Escort Estate (05GX38) was black / black.
  8. I had a book from the library about farm tractors which had a picture of a Sherman being used for ploughing. I'll try and find the book title.
  9. A link to CMN and an interesting piece of machinery. http://www.classicmachinery.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=119041#p119041
  10. If it's completely empty turn it into the gift shop - or restaurant. Similar theme to next door. 😉
  11. Didn't know if it may be of interest to someone. The small wheels and short drawbar do suggest airfield ops maybe, rather than road going use.
  12. Any ideas? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ex-Mod-Small-Trailer-Box-Storage-Trailer/174201959054?hash=item288f3ef28e:g:8MkAAOSwQLZeQVWD
  13. Sorry, didn't mean to confuse... But I should've thought of that as I found it while googling something in Devon.
  14. I've not heard of this place before but some interesting machines. https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Attraction_Review-g5994286-d7222481-Reviews-Ilfracombe_Machinery_Heritage_Museum-Ilfracombe_Queensland.html
  15. Something in the mist of memory tells me the engine was a Perkins Prima. Also fitted to Austin Maestro and Montego diesels.
